ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR)- The Roanoke Valley SPCA has been closed for more than a month in order to make critical foundation repairs. The repairs were essential for safety, functionality, and in order to keep the operation going.
Three dogs and thirteen cats are currently in foster care while the work on the facility is nearing completion.
The repairs have been made possible through a grant received from the Roanoke Women’s Foundation, as well as various other supporters in the community.
Today a Facebook post stated the following:
This morning we got the keys to the shelter back. Our repaired floors are looking great and with the help of Servpro Industries, LLC we now begin the long process of concrete dust cleanup from the foundation repair that is everywhere and in our duct system. We’re one step closer to reopening.Roanoke Valley SPCA Facebook Post
This is Roanoke Valley SPCA CEO, Denise Hayes’s response to the organization’s anticipated re-opening:
If things stay on schedule, we’ll move our furniture back in on the 30th and then all of the dog kennels will be reinstalled on the fifth of February, and so then the animals will start to come back, be seen by the veterinarian, that sort of stuff. If everything stays on track we’re on schedule to reopen February 10th.Denise Hayes, Roanoke Valley SPCA CEO
